Please consider making the Antelope Lodge your headquarters during your stay in
Alpine. My husband and I have owned the Lodge since 1995. The Lodge is a
restored 1940s motor court, with cottages spaced out over two acres. The rooms
are not huge, but each one has a kitchenette so you can cook or microwave your
breakfast and snacks, and avoid the rush at the restaurants. There’s a stone
porch out front of each room, with chairs for you to relax on, and a central
courtyard with grass, picnic tables, barbecues, and a hose to wash off your
rocks with! If you’re coming out to West Texas to enjoy rockhunting in the
great outdoors, the Lodge is the perfect place to stay!
All the field trips start from the Lodge, and the great Rockhound Barbecue on Sunday, April 20th will be in the courtyard at the Lodge. As most of you know, I don’t get
paid for leading field trips, and the more rockhounds that stay at the Lodge,
the easier it will be for me to convince my family that I should keep doing the
two-week-long rockhunting extravaganzas I’ve started with this April’s hunts.
